  4. Re: Sleeping through the night, very full in the morning....

    I've felt your pain. Waking up when I roll over onto my giant hurting boob and leaving wet spots on the sheets (ewe). I agree that you can pump til you're comfortable and eventually your body will...
  5. Re: OK, Someone Please Tell Me What Just Happened

  10. Re: Have OS and back to work, double pump?

    I always double pump at work. I've found that I usually end up with what my LO needs throughout the day (13oz from 3 pumping sessions). Also double pumping keeps me from having engorgement and...

    Re: vitamins for baby

    I'm not really sure why they need extra. I'm also still taking my prenatal vits. But I figured extra vitamins couldn't hurt. My Dr. recomended tri-vi-sol. It's A, D + C.

    Re: Why wait 6 weeks before pumping?

    I had to pump from the beginning because my LO would only take one side. As a result I have a massive oversupply problem. If you can wait, I would suggest that you do so that your supply will be in...
